I love a handful of Zappa's songs, BUT, my partner's mother grew up with him in LA and had a very similar experience as this poor, young interviewer: he was rude, dismissive, and assumed-you-don't-know-what-you're-talking-about-just-because-you're-a-woman, etc. I mean c'mon! This woman had a healthier handle on John Cage's theories than Zappa did, yet he still tried to make her out to seem like the idiot in the room. Shame on Zappa. Support literally anyone else (I bet their music is better, too).
